Ginther 'Disappointed' Following Meeting With Columbus Crew Owner

Nov 16, 2017

Columbus Mayor Andy Ginther and officials with the Columbus Partnership say they are disappointed and frustrated with yesterday's meeting with Major League Soccer executives  to try and prevent the Crew SC from moving to Austin, Texas.

In a statement, the two said Crew owner Anthony Precourt is not committed to keeping the team in Columbus. Precourt says he was disappointed with the meeting. He says he'll move the team unless a privately-financed stadium is built downtown.
